In a season five episode Star Trek: The Next Generation, the Enterprise crew falls under the spell of a dangerously addictive augmented reality game. That same game lies buried within mobile game Star Trek: Timelines, an easter egg so well-hidden only one player has uncovered it, and they don’t even know it yet.
The days of unique Star Trek simulators, based on The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine or Voyager are long over, but a superb model of the USS Enterprise from TNG, made by Jason B in Unreal Engine 4, shows how a Star Trek game like that would look today.
A little old, but still funny....here's Star Trek: The Next Generation mashed up with Angry Birds. It's a perfect fit. [via Guyism]
There's much that Star Trek tells us about the future of collared shirts, the U.N. and torpedoes, but we've been trying to figure out what it says about the future of games.
